There were lots of outdoor shots, and trying to be atmospheric and show
what a **** tip Co Durham is (when you're a meeja person) there were
shots of the huddled-together rooftops. I froze the frame a few times
and did a head count. 80% of the aerials were contract quality Group C/D
ones. This is going to be interesting in the coming years.


Are those aerials still in use? Surely everyone in **** tips has upgraded to Sky Q by now.

No, it's a fallacy that poor people all have a Sky or cable package. In
any case, the houses shown were typical Co Durham terraces, many of
which are occupied by hard-working people who are not badly off at all.
The layabout drug-taking criminal scum mostly live in blocks of flats,
council semis, or their mates' settees.

Most people who use Sky also have an aerial, so they have an alternative.
